Chinese textile maker HOdo eyes expansion in Cambodia
Oct '12
China based textile and garment conglomerate, HOdo Group Co Ltd, which sells garments under its personalized HOdo label, is looking forward to boost its presence in Southern Cambodia’s Sihanoukville province.
As reported by China Daily, Zhou Haijiang, President of the privately-owned HOdo Group said, since 2007, the company has invested robustly towards establishment of Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone in Cambodia’s Prey Nob district. The total investment in the project is likely to reach US$ 320 million, he said.
The zone, a fully operational business park, now covers an area of 3 sq km, and is expected to span on a total area of 11 sq km, upon completion. 23 firms, including eight overseas firms have already occupied spaces in the zone, Mr. Haijiang said.
Once completed, the zone is expected to generate 150,000 employment opportunities in the Southeast Asian nation over the next few years, he added.
The Jiangsu province’s Wuxi based HOdo Group has continued to achieve a double-digit revenue growth since 2008, with its earnings reaching 35.1 billion yuan or US$ 5.6 billion during last year, Mr. Haijiang said.
The company’s move is a reverberation of the country’s plea to ‘go global’ and the park is one of the nine economic zones being established by Chinese firms in foreign countries, he said.
Low costs, positive trade conditions and the huge market of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations are some of the factors that favour the construction of the economic zone in Cambodia. 
Unlike China, Cambodia allows free cotton imports, without any quota restrictions, which allows garment firms to cut on their raw material costs.
